Summary

The Malvern College Hong Kong experience

The 25-year successful experience within the Malvern Family of offering an International Baccalaureate (IB) programme, results in us adopting it as our backbone curriculum to address the educational needs of students from different cultural backgrounds. Classes will be conducted with a small number of students, supported by additional tutor time and designed to enhance the transdisciplinary approach of the IB curriculum. Placing equal emphasis on the personal development of students, we will offer a wide range of co-curricular activities as well as a house system, to provide the best integrated education to our students. Assigning students to houses will help foster team spirit and enhance their sense of belonging, both critical elements in character development ensuring a rich and fulfilling school life.
